003 Light by SketchySei 003 Light by SketchySei
Third image out of my 100 Themes :D. This is the most I've ever done for a theme xD *shot.

Anyhow, that's water in the background, not sure if that's clear >_>. I like how this turned out- and it's definitely the most artistic thing I've done in a very long time. This was referenced from a real picture because, I wasn't sure how to mimic water. Doing this has actually taught me a lot how light reflects in water. So this challenge has done some good for me after all~ :dummy:

Aww, thanks so much for the comment :3. Reflective water (and water just in general) is tricky to draw .-.

I love the way the background turned out. I knew what it was right away. The silhouette is awesome too!

Thanks! :3 I don't know, when I kinda looked at it, it sorta looked it could have been... something else...? >_> Perhaps just the sky <_<; :shrug:.

I think the silhouette looks a little less realistic, but it came out all right xD.

Hmm, I don't know. For the most part, when I was doing the water, I painted it at 25-50% lol >_>. So when it's zoomed up, you can see all the strokes and bubble-like brush marks. I didn't even bother looking at it's correct distance xD *shot.

Usually I work at 100-200 and even 300%. But, I noticed that when I do that, I take so much time... >_>;;. But, I think that's especially when I do the base colours for my cell shading, because you can see all the imperfections on a good monitor <_<. I need to know short cuts, seriously. :iconwthplz:
